Sun Forecast Shock

Weather expert Rupert Murdoch, known for his far sighted forecasts, has dramatically defied his forecasting colleagues by predicting 'Sunny weather from March'.

However meteorologists from the famed 'Hacking News' have poured scorn on the Murdoch prophesy. 'This old man is losing his marbles' said expert Phil Up 'there is no way that we will get sun shining from March. It will be a pale entity which might appear once a week, but the news from the world of journalism is that the climate is changing and Murdoch has failed to see this.'

'It's a WAPPING LIE' screamed a headline in a paper renowned for it's expressed views on the weather, which have caused several old ladies to die of fright.

So we shall watch the sky and see whether our eggs are sunny side up. Or will they be scrambled into a twisted pretence of the truth?

A corp of newshounds are already sniffing.
